Salem Police Investigating Armed Home Invasion on Prince Street

Salem police officers are searching for two men who allegedly robbed a home on Prince Street while armed with handguns Monday night.

Salem Police officers searched the city Monday night for two men who allegedly robbed an apartment on Prince Street while armed with handguns.

At about 10:30 p.m., local police officers responded to a 911 call from a Prince Street apartment building where a second-floor tenant said two men had just burst into their apartment and robbed them at gunpoint.

The two men reportedly fled 45 Prince St. with an iPhone, an iTouch and $1,000 cash, according to scanner reports. Police have yet to locate the suspects.

The Salem Police Department's BOLO alert Monday night described the suspects as being black males, one 6'2, the other 5'10, who were reportedly wearing all black at the time of the robbery.

I lived on Prince Street only a few houses away. The odds that no one saw these guys as they left are next to nothing.

Huh, and they took $1000 in CASH that was just laying around? Sounds screwy to me.

Its easy to have $1000.0 cash when the tax payers most likely pay the rent. Inquiring minds would love to know!
